5 Dead After Military Plane Crash In Ga.

A routine training mission turned deadly in Georgia. Five people are confirmed dead after an Air National Guard cargo plane crashed near Savannah.
Officials said the aircraft — with nine on board — crashed then burst into flames after taking off from the Savannah Hilton Head International Airport just before noon Wednesday.
The U.S. Air Force said the WC-130 military aircraft, typically used for weather reconnaissance, was headed to an Air Force base in Arizona and was from the 156th Airlift Wing out of Puerto Rico.

It’s unclear what caused it to go down, and an investigation is underway.
The identities of the dead crew members have not been released.
Wednesday’s crash comes amid a recent string of military aircraft crashes both nationwide and around the world.
